An Award, Exchange and a Surprise

It is indeed another lucky day for me! I've been in linen and threads heaven since I recieved this package from Stitches and Spice in Australia. Naomi sent me 8 hand-dyed linens on my favorite counts and her entire hand-dyed thread line. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much Naomi. I had to put down whatever I was stitching earlier to start on a Mail Art model using one of the fabrics. If only you can see the grin on my face! I've been staring and touching the threads for so long earlier that I decided to put them on my revolving display cabinet... Look at the photo below.:)

Last Tuesday, October 21st, I mailed 5 packages... 3 of which are abroad while 2 were domestic. To-date, 4 packages were recieved aside from one abroad. I still can't believe that my packages to France and London were recieved in just 4 days... Isn't that so fast?

Show and Tell: Anne-Marie recieved her MA along with the matching smalls. I finished the envelope as I normally finish my purses. The matching smalls are: needlebook, altoid tin topper and a fob. This is one of my private exchange this year and I sure did enjoy it! Thanks for doing it with me Anne-Marie.

I was also advised by Brenda that she already recieved her prize winning on my secret contest. I stitch a simple scissors case for her with matching beaded fob.

Wow, how exciting to get that package from Stitches and Spice! I love their fabrics, but I haven't tried their threads - you'll have to let us know how you like them. And beautiful exchange pieces too.
